Art and Art History Graduate Symposium
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Coordinated by the Art Student Graduate Organization and co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History, Department of Classics, Department of Romance Studies, and The Graduate and Professional Student Federation.
Community: Public, Private, Patron, & Spectator
Join us for this day-long, interdisciplinary exploration of the interrelations between community and art-making. In the Ackland Art Museum’s Art& space, Graduate students from UNC and universities from across the US will present and discuss new research touching on ways in which material objects manifest collective values and shape perceptions of identity among disparate audiences.
Through a series of panel presentations, discussions, and a culminating keynote address, gathered attendees and presenters will ask together: How do works of art create dialogues between and within communities?
Keynote address by Dr. Peter Chametzky, Professor of Art History in the School of Visual Art & Design at the University of South Carolina.
